Achtis Hotel

Scene

Relaxing, friendly family-owned boutique hotel with lovely gardens

The Achtis Hotel is an elegant boutique property with natural stone and wood construction and views of Toroneos Gulf and Afitos village. The warm, helpful family owners earn consistent praise from guests and many return year after year. A charming tan-brick entrance features greenery and flowering plants and double wooden doors. Inside, the lobby's palette of soft green, beige, and yellow sets a calming tone. Small sculptures, brick accent walls, and circular windows make the space feel special. Guest rooms are situated in buildings around the pool, where peacocks can be seen strolling around. Beautiful gardens throughout the quiet grounds feature fish ponds and space for relaxing. Ivy-covered wooden railings and terraces sheltered by white curtains lend a romantic vibe. Most guests are couples, along with some families with young children.

Location

A short walk from Afitos village

This property is well-located within five minutes' walk of the small historic village of Afitos. The village is on a hilltop overlooking Toroneos Gulf. There are restaurants, bars, and cafes in the village, as well as charming little squares, cobblestone streets, and traditional taverns. There are also a Folklore Museum (six-minute walk), the church of St. Demetrius in the central square (five-minute walk), and Afitos Beach (eight-minute walk). Several beach bars offer sunbeds to rent. Kallithea, which offers livelier nightlife, is a six-minute drive from the hotel. Access to the hotel is via a main road, but the grounds are set back and quiet. Thessaloniki Airport is about an hour to 90 minutes away by car.
